iREPdRT ON THE CHAIRMAN'S
' RECENT STATEMENT.
'The Junior Class Accept It After
Very Le.ngthy Discussion Affi
davit Presented by Chairman.
Following 1b the cssentinls of tho re
port qf a committee appointed by
President Myers of tho Junior class to
investigate the expenses of tho Junior
Prom, as reported by tho chairman of
First We wish to commend the
Chairman on the great Bdccess of the
Prom, nnd tho general- satisfaction
jbhatMyaa voiced by its patrons. The
number of couples In attendance and
ihe ""treatment accorded them sur-
that of any provloua Junior
No complaints have been reg
wlth the committee on this
J Second Between tho officers of tho
class! ywho appointed tho committee
a,nd the committee Itself wo can find
no specific previous agreement or ar
rangement as to the division of the
frrofiW or losses of thc$ dance. The
chairman" was given' hb Instructions as
to the turnimyiover of such profits or
lsseVto the class, and there wore no
TOstrlctibns or rules, laid down by said
Qrocrjs( of tho cIbbs. Nolther was any
a$tldri takdn by tho claBs whereby the.
committee was instructed or restrict
ed in nny manner, elthor wero tho
lumber of complimentary tickets to
1$ Is3ued by tho chairman limited in
aiiy way by tho class. In view of tho
said facts in 'conducting tho dance, tho
chairman seems ln havo felt that ho
was simply to follow the precedents
of other Junior Promb given in previous-years
and in dealing with him tho
class should bear these facts in mind.
Onnhe other hand, wo find that it has
been customary Tor tho chairman of
bach party given by this particular
class to submit a report and turn-over
the proceeds to the class treasurer.
This has, in ,tno knowlod'go of the
dommltteo, been dono on two previous
..decagons. . - i
Third1 Two witnesses. have testified
tometnbcrs of tho committee that the
chairman told them tho morning after
the Prom that one hundred and six
(108 couples wore present. Tho4
.chairman now says that ho stated to
these men that about one hundred
(100) couples wero present, ho having
courted, .t,hem to, .ascertain tho num
ber,.TJjo. report, ..as .submitted to tho
claslB shows that tho number of tickets
tkken'tint "tho door was eighty-nine

man in making his report stated that
temmpre couples were, on the Moor
thW'ttie eighty-nine (&9) accounted
for in" Ke report and thai thoonly way.
taat hd cbiild account fdr them was
thit thoy 'must have "sneaked'' In.
TllatT ten fcO) men could sneak in
vfithout paying is readily accounted for

form his duty at the drcsslrig-room
door. The chairman makes no defense,
simply stating that tho mistake was
his. Tho class is left to assume how
far his responsibility extends, but we
would, assume that if ten persons did
shoak In, It was the fault of poor man
agement on the part of tho chairman.

pllmentary tickets were distributed as

Making a total of twenty 20) tick
ets accounted for out of the twenty
eight (28) reported in the roport. The
chairman states that tho remaining
eight (8) tickets wero distributed to
his down-town friends and fraternity
brothers, whom he states would not
havo come otherwise on account of
lack of finances, and for this reason
he says it did not deduct, from the
otherwise gross receipts of tho dance.
Then, a total of ten (10) compllmen-
tatleB went to members of the commlt-
tee nnd for advertising, while eighteen
(18) went to tho chairman's friends
and fraternity brothers -and to pur-,
chase his admission to other dances;
It is lieyond the province or youY com
mittor to state whether the pbwors-of
complimentary giving was nb'usod to
tho disadvantage of those whb paid.
Fifth The repdrt contains an item
of twenty (20) dollars for refresh
ments. Two members of tbc-xommlt-teo
visited "Tommy" Coleman, tho
caterer for the dance, and asked what
had been his charge for the Junior
Prom. He replied eighteen (18) dol
lars. He was explicitly asked If this
included his own services and those
of his wife, and he answered emphatic
ally that it did. The next day ho was
asked for a written statement of tht
fact and he then said that ho bad on
tho previous occasion forgotten to in
elude his own services for two (2)
dollars, making the bill as pqr report
twenty (20) dollars. He alsoT stated
that ho had talked with tho chairman
In the meantime. The chairman,
when asked to explain this discrep
ancy, claimed that the two (2) dollars
difference was for extra punch. , The
committee Is at a loss to know why
tho explanation or the two. parties is
so diverse. . Also proof has been found
that this Caterer has cqnsldered It a
part of tho. plan oh other occasions of
University affairs togIve two bills for
the same occasion. Tho two differing
fro mtwo- (2) to. three (3) dollars In
